|1972||$60.00||excellent||Lois Alvarez||I bought mine used from a young man who bought it new several months before he decided to sell it. I don;t know what he paid, but he asked 60 dollars for it |
|1970||$104.04||new||I still have it and it still sounds great and is easy to play. |
|1977||$250||new||Mikie||Did I get ripped off? Looks like I can't hardly even sell it for that much now. I really do love this guitar, but it's sad I never really became very accomplished, I'm hoping to trade for an easier-to-play 6-string. |
|2013||$200||good||Daniel Meyer||Sounds great |
|2013||$50||poor||Mike chirhart||Replaced tuners, adjusted truss rod and replaced nut. Plays like dream. 50 dollars well spent.
|1972||$125.00||new||Ol' Sarge||Awesome voice & playability, has only improved with age! |
|1984||$500||new||Randi||Has held up very well. Have only had to change strings maybe three times in almost thirty years |
|2014||$350||good||Bought it at a estate sale and think I got a great deal |
|1974||$250||new||Bill||Great guitar. Made much more enjoyable with the onset of digital tuners! |
|1974||$75||poor||Bryan||The guitar was in a cardboard case, no strings, the bridge was pulling from the body, and it was covered in grime. I took to a guy who built Chet Atkin's Yakkity Ax and he charged me $14 to fix the bridge and give a cleanup job. I bought a set of a Martin Marquis strings, and at the first chord I knew the guitar was special! I still have the guitar and will probably be buried with it. |
|2014||$0||poor||Jacob||This is a mid seventies dreadnought 12 string acoustic Alvarez guitar. It's missing 1 of the tuning pegs and has minor body damage. |
|2015||$40||poor||Needs a lot of work, reviews make it sound worth the effort, though. Can't wait to play it!
|2000||$0||excellent||This guitar was left to me by my Dad when he passed in 2000. He very rarely played this guitar, but when he did it was beautiful. He said
he received it in a trade. He preferred his 6 string, which I also have. I think tuning it was his problem, so he never bothered with it much.
I don't play this guitar and it has been in its hard case for the past 15 years. I took it and had it cleaned up a few times over the years, just to keep it
in it's excellent shape. I am considering selling it, for I feel like it's beauty is being wasted. It's a 5021 AO1267 Japan. |
|1980||$28.00||excellent||This guitar is in every good condition, no diets, dings or scratches. S/N 00351 |
|2017||$199||good||1974 model I found on Ebay. Excellent condition with just a bit of belly that you'd expect in a 40+ year old 12 string. Took to my local guy who gave it a fret dressing. She's a beautiful addition to my Alvarez collection.... |
|1984||$250||new||mike||excellent condition |
|2015||$300||good||Joe||Bought a 1979 with an original case for $300. Absolutely love it. Best sounding acoustic I've played. These should be a lot more expensive than they are. |
|1981||$250||new||Skunkbeard||I bought it new in '81. It has never been set up, has been tuned to pitch for the last 37 years, and endured all sorts of environmental conditions, and it still plays and sounds like a dream. It was the only guitar I owned for a very long time got played a lot. A few frets are worn and it has a few nicks and scratches but is still a prize. The only thing I've done is put on better tuners and added a bridge pickup. It is 2nd only to my Martin D28 and rates higher than the Ovation 12. Best $250 bucks I ever spent. |
|2018||$200||good||Great sounding guitar - a few dings but nothing to affect play-ability and tone. Excellent action for an older 12 string.
Also received an Alv 5023 with this purchase that was in very poor condition (hazy/flaking refinished on top & broken headstock) - both guitars are ~1972 vintage. |
|1973||$250||new||Bert||Bought this in college and still have it. Neck is straight, frets are flat, and it stays in tune well. It sounds very full- can't tell much difference compared to a Martin at 10x the price. |
|1991||$75||excellent||Bert||Yardsale deal of a lifetime |

|2018||$500||worn||April of 2021, great 12 string. sounds amazing! |
|2018||$450||good||bought this in january of 2021, and I've been playing it nonstop ever since! |
|2018||$200||good||jf||Script Alvarez logo (1972, I believe). Put on a set of new strings; now it plays and sounds great. For the price, the seller threw in a beat up Alvz 5023 that had a peeling refinished top, not the original tuning machines, and had a badly repaired broken neck at the headstock - made the deal even better, since the tuning machines were Grovers. |
